Court to rule on Union County Dem election Tuesday

The motto 'Vox Populi Vox Dei' is not meant to be ironic.


Judge Katherine Dupuis is set to rule on the Union County Democratic Committee matter Tuesday. The hearing gets under way in her courtroom at 11:000 AM.

At issue is whether the election to replace Assemblyman Jerry Green, who resigned as chair, is to be by "open vote" (raised hands) as Sen. Nick Scutari asserts, citing the organization's bylaws; or by secret ballot (machines) as wanted by Acting Chairperson Colleen Mahr and Hillside chair Anthony Salters, the third candidate.

The vote is slated to be taken at a convention of the County Committee set for Wednesday, Feruary 21, 7:00 PM, at the Gran Centurion in Clark.

Stay tuned.
